    Comments about FES Twisted Wire Training Bit:

    I was riding my quarter horse gelding in a twisted wire snaffle without a shank. I needed a little more control. This bit has been just the ticket! He performs beautifully in it. He is collected and responsive. Using this bit has enabled me to ride with a loose rein; I pull on his mouth less than with the other bit. Consistent, regular riding and this bit have taken my riding to the next level.

      Comments about FES Twisted Wire Training Bit:

      I was using a twisted wire snaffle but needed more control. This bit enabled me to keep my horse collected without constantly pulling on the reins. It makes my cues more effective but it isn't overly severe. My riding has stepped up a notch since I have been using it.

        I needed a bit to help with head set, collection of the horse and a little more whoa. My daughter is going to try it on her young horse to see if this bit will work for her.

        Excellent value and style

        Comments about FES Twisted Wire Training Bit:

        My horse loves this bit, I love this bit. Looks more expensive than it is and the twist is rounded and not severe. I need only very light finger contact to get my gaited mare to drop her head. She never gapes in this bit. It's made so you can use draw or a second set or reins if desired for training.

        What bits are made of...

        Stainless Steel

        Bits are most commonly made of stainless steel. Stainless steel can be cleaned and polished repeatedly without damaging the finish. It is strong, durable, and flavorless and does not impact salivation. Some stainless steel mouths are inlaid with copper.

        Copper

        Copper encourages salivation to increase the sensitivity of the horse’s mouth. It warms up quicker than stainless steel in cold weather.

        Sweet Iron

        Sweet iron is cold-rolled steel. The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet to the horse and increases salivation.  

        Rubber

        Rubber softens the action of the bit as it is softer than traditional metals. Rubber-covered bits are generally thicker than metal.   

        Aluminum

        Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.

        Plastic

        Plastic bits are softer than traditional metal bits and they are durable. Many plastic bits are scented or flavored.

        Nickel Silver

        Nickel silver is a nickel alloy, also known as German silver. It encourages salivation for a more sensitive and supple mouth.
